Agriculture

The Conservancy is committed to being a valuable partner with Delta growers, agriculture-related businesses, and residents in protecting and enhancing the Delta’s agricultural and working landscapes and sense of place.

Approximately 500,000 acres of highly productive agricultural lands provide the economic base and primary land use in the Delta. Agriculture encompasses livestock, specialty crops such as asparagus, pears, and wine grapes, and various table vegetables and feed crops. Agriculture is by far the largest portion of a $3 billion Delta regional economy that also includes recreation and tourism.
